8:03am
officers, undercover officers walking the route, running the route, to keep an eye on folks. they are also keeping an eye out for any suspicious packages and those sorts of things. you know what we are seeing out here live too is in light of what happened in boston, we are seeing a lot of love for boston, a lot of people wearing things in tribute to boston and i talked with one runner who was doing just that and i talked to him about how comfortable he feels today with the added security measures in place. >> with all that happened in boston, there was a lot of concern about whether there would be something going on here and i wanted to show the people in boston we are just as strong and we support them and we are running this race regardless of what happened so -- >> reporter: again, we are bringing it back out here live, san francisco police are doing their best to make sure this is a safe race today and that nothing takes place out here. one of the things they even did was along the race route they took out all the trashcans that are normally there and they put in clear trashcans, transparent trashcans so they could see what was inside of them just to be on the safe side really that's what the chief says is that he just wants to take e ex
